VERO BEACH -- The Vero Beach Chamber Orchestra, now in its fifth season, will perform a concert at 7 p.m. March 3 in the Vero Beach High School Performing Arts Center located at 1707 16th St. in Vero Beach.
Musical selections performed will include Pavane, Op. 50 by Faure, St. Paul's Suite by Holst, and Haydn's Symphony 100 "Military" directed by Page Howell.
The idea of a community orchestra was conceived in 2007 and took form in the fall of 2008. Their mission is to provide professional and semi-professional adult and student musicians in Indian River County and neighboring communities the opportunity to play classic symphonic literature at a professional level.
Their expectations are that all musicians will strive to attain a higher level of excellence and hope to make classical music accessible and affordable for everyone in the community.
This concert is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted and proceeds are to benefit Indian River Habitat for Humanity, with the goal to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope.
